Police: Thieves could be watching your mail

 

As the number of shopping days until Christmas winds down, many area residents are searching in stores or online for the perfect gift for that special someone. But some thieves are out to pilfer their gifts from your mail.

La Vernia police and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service are investigating a reported mail theft from an address in the 2900 block of F.M. 775, just south of the city limits. The incident occurred Nov. 28, said Chief Bruce Ritchey of the La Vernia Police Department.

A woman reported on Nov. 30 that someone opened her mailbox and removed an envelope containing two flannel shirts valued at more than $54, which she had ordered from Duluth Trading Co., Ritchey said. The envelope was ripped open, emptied of its contents, and left on the ground by the mailbox.

Ritchey reminds residents to remain vigilant during the holiday season, as thieves are on the lookout for opportunities to steal packages and cards containing checks. He also urges people to secure and conceal valuables in vehicles and to lock the doors of their cars and homes.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to call the La Vernia Police Department at 830-779-4541, option 1.

Anonymous tips -- eligible for cash rewards if they lead to an arrest or to the recovery of stolen property -- can be furnished to Crime Stoppers of Wilson County at 830-393-INFO (4636).
